AW: *** BUG? ***

We runned into similar problems with McAfee's TVD. It's a problem for most
virusscaners to do on-access scanning on network drives. It's not directly a
problem from the virusscanner, it's more a problem of the network drivers of
WinXX. While transfering the file from the network the data is scanned. Some
scanners seem to be to slow on scanning. So WinXX thinks the connection was
broken or hangs. As a workaround: disable all network drives for on-access
scanning. McAfee's newest scan engine seems now to work correctly too.

Never trust a operating system you have no sources for
Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
